Earlier this month we reviewed the free ACCP-SEEK app from the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), concluding the app represented an “outstanding resource” to assist with preparation for the pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine board exams. Today we review the ACCP’s other app, the mobile version of the prestigious CHEST journal.
CHEST is the official peer-reviewed publication of the ACCP, and publishes research advancements throughout the multidisciplinary umbrella of chest medicine, which includes pulmonology, critical care, sleep medicine, cardiorespiratory interactions, thoracic surgery, transplantation, and airways disease. Monthly readership numbers are over 30,000, and the acceptance rate has run 9-13% since 2005.
Among the 43 respiratory journals, CHEST ranks 3rd in impact factor and 2nd in total citations. Other features of CHEST include sections on recent advances in chest medicine, chest imaging and pathology, topics in practice management, medical writing tips, and pulmonary and critical care pearls.
